BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Boulevard Brewing Co.
Missouri, United States
boulevard.com

Style: Saison / Farmhouse Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 8.50%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
Most breweries have at least one piece of equipment that’s just a bit persnickity. Here at Boulevard we have fermenter number seven, the black sheep of our cellar family. Ironically, when our brewers were experimenting with variations on a traditional Belgian-style farmhouse ale, the perfect combination of elements came together in that very vessel. You could call it fate, but they called it Tank 7, and so it is. Beginning with a big surge of fruity aromatics and grapefruit-hoppy notes, the flavor of this complex, straw-colored ale tapers off to a peppery, dry finish.

Dark yellow with a murky unfiltered haze. Poured with a tall, billowy, bright white foam with very good retention. Sweet banana estery aromas, with fresh, lightly tart fruity and light peppery notes, and light perfumy floral notes as well. Sweet malty aromas. Medium bodied with soft, effervescent carbonation. Creamy smooth feel despite the high carbonation followed b mellow warmth near the finish. Sweet banana and fruit flavors with sweet malt, candy sugar and hints of bubblehum. Medium light bitterness through the middle coupled with light fruit tartness. Sweet banana esters and light fruitiness return on the back end. Finished semi-dryly with sweet malt and candied fruit flavors with a hint of tartness. A plethora of aromas and flavors that seems to change with every sip. Sticky sweet and very tasty with fabulous mouthfeel. Dangerously drinkable.

Outstanding saison. Full of flavor but not overpowering. Bought just a few bottles to try it out, will be purchasing more next time.

12oz bottle marked best by 5 Aug 2018. Slightly cloudy orange with two fingers of fluffy white head. Smells of grass, spice, and a bit of funk. Soft feel with plenty of carbonation. Tastes of yeast, pepper, and some herbal hop bitterness. Great example of the style.

I'm finally getting a chance to try this beer. Boulevard just recently made their appearance back into Tennessee and I'm very glad they did. I missed this one the first time around.

this one hits all of the right notes for a traditional Belgian Farmhouse ale. that being said, it also brings a Slight bitterness to the game that I find rather appealing. Slightly less funky than many of its counterparts, the twist is rather nice and for a beer that I will be able to grab off of the shelf regularly, I am going to purchase this early and often.

Very very enjoyable if you like saisons....

Beautiful in the glass, and the nose gets your attention and keeps it. I was in great anticipation as I had read a few reviews and the websites description. The farmhouse was 100% there, and sweet and fruity too, which caught me off guard. A nice change of pace, but would enjoy only one.
